Great Tasting Homemade Dinner Rolls in an hour

Having a special dinner?  Don't serve a cold store bought roll.  With just a few ingredients you can made a fresh out of the oven tasty dinner roll.  The secret is to place your pan of rolls in a pan of warm water to rise.  The recommended temperature is 90 degrees.  Rise time will be cut in half.  Using a quick rise recipe that does not proof the yeast and the quick rise technique, you can have rolls in 60 minutes with minimum work.  Here is the recipe.

Dinner Rolls
Ready in 90 minutes

2 – 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 packet Instant Yeast
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup milk
½ cup water
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine

 Combine ¾ cup flour, sugar, dry yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl and stir until blended.  Combine milk, water and butter in a small microwave-safe bowl.  Microwave on high in 15 second increments until very warm but not hot to the touch (120 to 130°F.  Butter won’t melt completely).  Add flour mixture.  Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.  Add ¼ cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed.  Stir in just enough remaining flour so that the dough will form into a ball.  Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic and springs back when lightly pressed with 2 fingers, about 6 to 8 minutes.  Cover with a towel; let rest for 10 minutes.  Cut dough into 12 equal pieces; shape into balls using your hands.  Place in greased 8-inch round or square pan.  Cover with towel; let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.  Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from pan by running a knife around the edges and invert onto wire rack; brush with additional melted butter, if desired.  Serve warm.  Recipe can be doubled for a larger crowd.

Helpful Tip: Rise dough in a pan of warm water (90°F), and cut rise time in half.
